LeadPipe.Net is an a'la carte toolbox for .NET programmers. The goal is to provide proven, well-tested, and well-documented libraries that programmers can rely on to help make their jobs a little easier. LeadPipe.Net doesn't try to force a particular application style or heavy-handed conventions. Instead, it takes a "take what you want and leave the rest" approach that provides solutions without a mess of tightly coupled dependencies.

LeadPipe.Net is the core library that provides quite a few useful cross-cutting goodies that are handy for almost any project. Even if you don't want or need any other LeadPipe.Net libraries, there's almost certainly something in this library you'll find useful.

LeadPipe.Net.Domain provides implementations of core Domain Driven Design types including Entity, Repository, Value Object, domain events, Aggregate Roots, and more. These carefully crafted implementations are well documented and try to hold true to the spirit of Eric Evan's outstanding work.

LeadPipe.Net.Data.NHibernate is a comprehensive pre-built data implementation package that uses NHibernate and provides implementations of a Repository, the Query Object pattern, and Unit of Work pattern. This library is built in such a way that if you don't want to abstract NHibernate's ISession object with a Unit of Work or use the Repository pattern, you can still take advantage of other offerings such as the Query Object pattern and Object Finder.

LeadPipe.Net.Lucene provides a set of base types that make implementing the powerful, open source Lucene search engine straight-foward. The goal is to make using Lucene as simple as this:

var results = searchService.Search("123");

The LeadPipe.Net Authorization library provides a flexible, easy-to-use authorization mechanism for your applications. With it, your authorization looks like this:

var isAuthorized = authorizer
	.Can.ExecuteAnyOfTheseActivities(new[] { activity })

If you prefer exceptions:

	.Can.Not.ExecuteAnyOfTheseActivities(new[] { activity })
